Exhibition “Hans Kelsen and the Elegance of the Austrian Constitution”

Publié le 16 January 2024

Until 30 June 2024 at the Jewish Museum Vienna

Four years ago, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Austrian Constitution. The role played by the Jewish jurist Hans Kelsen in writing this constitution is not insignificant. His father, a candlestick maker, installed the candlesticks in the Vienna synagogue. A professor at the University of Vienna, Hans Kelsen helped to draft the constitution. Despite this, he was forced to leave the city in 1930 in the face of an upsurge in anti-Semitic acts.
